This pattern is also known as “Hand-dyed Sweater” in Men’s knits: 20 new classics.

Please note: The pattern specifies 12mm needles for the body, but this size was not available in the drop-down menu.

From the Book:
Knit on large needles and worked into a strong sweater shape, each stitch of this super-bulky yarn helps create a pattern. Luxurious alpaca has been blended with soft wool into a highly individual yarn, which is kettle dyed to add a further color dimension. Vibrant and naturally variegated tones are achieved in this way, with each hank of yarn a unique creation. By keeping the design simple, the yarn is truly showcased to maximum effect.
